Broadway Playhouse: Great theatre for a Girls’ Night on the Town!

“Love, Loss & What I Wore” is currently playing at the Broadway Playhouse through December 4th, 2011. A group of monologues by women telling how that clothes that they wore affected the memories of their lives. The show starts off quite poignant, describing clothes that have some important meaning in the their lives. I was quite surprised how much I was enjoying the show with these poignant moments. The second half had quite a bit more humor, including at bit called “my first bra.” The humor definitely moved the intermission less show along, but I longed for the stories found earlier in the show. The bra stories were part of the show called “the clothesline” where all 5 women on stay spoke telling their story.

 

I would highly recommend this she for women whether they be fashion concious or not. I would say that the crowd was easily 12 to 1 women to men. I undoubtedly was sure that the men in attendance were the supportive husband that tagged along or the brave soul that surprised his wife with tickets. Perhaps there were some gentlemen, like myself, that were there seeing the show as part of his Broadway In Chicago subscription. I am glad I saw the show, although I would not have without my season tix! This show is also very easy for the non-theatre goer to see since it is a collection of vignettes. The show is about an hour & 40 minutes with no intermission, so keep this in mind when buying drinks beforehand (I had two beers 7 could not make it all the way though)!

About Michael Flynn

I began my hospitality career in Nashville, TN just over eight years ago. Originally from Baltimore, I had moved down to Nashville to pursue my dream of being a country music superstar. It was there that I found my true talent in being a hospitality rockstar. I am an avid sports fan, and my favorite teams are the Baltimore Ravens and Washington Capitals, however I do find myself cheering for the Bears each Sunday during football season, largely due to the great amount of respect and admiration I have for Jay Cutler. While hospitality is my true passion I do have other interests including crocheting, cycling, and elongated penny collecting. I enjoy spending time with my tea-cup poodle “Cutsy” and hanging out at the 31st Street Harbor. If you see me running around the hotel make sure to say hi!
